We sat down with Alvin C. Jacobs Jr. to discuss Charlotte, his work and the “Welcome to Brookhill” exhibit. We also wrapped up our history of the Crocketts and Supportive Guy says Charlotte was an All-Star.
We sat down with Nata and Walker of the Locked on Hornets podcast to find out if they think Charlotte is ready for the 2019 All Star Game (spoiler: they have concerns), discuss the upcoming All-Star events and spend way too much time talking about the celebrity game. John also breaks out a special history segment and Supportive Guy convinces Nata to be positive.
We were joined by Levine Museum of the New South’s new historian, Dr. Willie Griffin, to learn more about his background, discuss civil rights history in Charlotte and convince him the Meck Dec was real. We also learned some musical history in Charlotte and were supported (as always) by Supportive Guy.
This week we sat down with historian Tom Hanchett and engineer Keith Garbrick of LaBella Associates to talk about the firm’s recent historic donation and what it could mean for Charlotte. We also continued our search for a new logo, talked about Joey Big News Bruno, learned about some wrasslin’ and baseball history and were supported (as always) by Supportive Guy.
You’ve probably heard of the organization but what does it actually do in the Charlotte area? The answers will probably surprise you. We also announced our new logo competition, learned about Martin Luther King Jr’s connections to Charlotte and were supported by Supportive Guy.
Ps listen to the end for a special guest
In our most unique interview to date, we sat down with two passengers from the “Miracle on the Hudson” flight to hear first-hand what that day was like for them, how it changed the passengers and crew forever and what it means to see the plane in Charlotte.
A special thanks to Beverly Waters and Barry Leonard for sharing their stories and to the Carolinas Aviation Museum for coordinating and hosting the conversation.
We spent a morning last month at the Carolinas Aviation Museum and met with Katie Swaringen to chat about the museum and its unique exhibits. Settle in for delightful conversation that touches on topics like the history of the museum and how the Miracle on the Hudson plane found its home in Charlotte.
Later in the episode we learn about the eccentric Haskell Deaton and Supportive Guy shared some words for our listeners from Ohio.
